How To Become A Jeweler
Jewelry and precious stones are very important valuable items to many people around the world. Jewelers are trained professionals that use different equipment to design and create a variety of pieces of jewelry. Jewelers typically need at least a high school diploma. Many employers prefer candidates with some formal training and related work experience. Some technical and vocational schools and community colleges offer programs in jewelry design and manufacturing or related fields. Employment of jewelers is projected to grow more slowly than average for all professions, increasing 5% from 2008 to 2018.
